Changing a screen pack involves extruder downtime. The extruder must be shut down and the head disassembled. The breaker plate is removed and the old screens are extracted and discarded. At this point, the breaker plate 34 2 Extrusion Overview should be replaced with a clean one – or cleaned thoroughly – and the new screen pack installed. The head is then reassembled and the head bolts are checked for proper torque as the system components approach operating temperature. To minimize downtime, it is good practice to have all tools and equipment located at the head area before the changeover begins.
Mixing is necessary to produce the homogeneity required in the melt. Several designs allow the breaker plate to serve its conventional functions while also creating flow dynamics that improve the level of mixing in the melt. These devices can be stacked in a series to create various flow fields for different mixing applications. 4 Melt Filter Filtering is required to remove contaminants or gels from the melt before they enter the die. Contaminants may enter the system any number of ways, from debris getting into the solid feed to wear of machine components.
The relationship between throughput and screw diameter is cubic, dependent upon the volume inside the extruder available for polymer. With a certain polymer, a 2inch extruder may have a maximum throughput of 100 lb/hr, while a 4-inch extruder would have a maximum throughput of 800 lb/hr. Therefore, system requirements such as material handling capacity, motor size, cooling capability, and floor space increase rapidly with an increase in screw size. Components of the extruder hardware can be categorized into five systems (Fig.
